2020-12-09lift locale lock out of internal __get_localeRich Felker-6/+5
this allows the lock to be shared with setlocale, eliminates repeated per-category lock/unlock in newlocale, and will allow the use of pthread_once in newlocale to be dropped (to be done separately).
2018-11-02fix regression in setlocale for LC_ALL with per-category settingRich Felker-1/+1
commit d88e5dfa8b989dafff4b748bfb3cba3512c8482e inadvertently changed the argument pased to __get_locale from part (the current ;-delimited component) to name (the full string).
2018-10-20adapt setlocale to support possibility of failureRich Felker-12/+20
introduce a new LOC_MAP_FAILED sentinel for errors, since null pointers for a category's locale map indicate the C locale. at this time, __get_locale does not fail, so there should be no functional change by this commit.
2018-09-12split internal lock API out of libc.h, creating lock.hRich Felker-1/+1
this further reduces the number of source files which need to include libc.h and thereby be potentially exposed to libc global state and internals. this will also facilitate further improvements like adding an inline fast-path, if we want to do so later.
2018-09-12overhaul internally-public declarations using wrapper headersRich Felker-2/+0
commits leading up to this one have moved the vast majority of libc-internal interface declarations to appropriate internal headers, allowing them to be type-checked and setting the stage to limit their visibility. the ones that have not yet been moved are mostly namespace-protected aliases for standard/public interfaces, which exist to facilitate implementing plain C functions in terms of POSIX functionality, or C or POSIX functionality in terms of extensions that are not standardized. some don't quite fit this description, but are "internally public" interfacs between subsystems of libc. rather than create a number of newly-named headers to declare these functions, and having to add explicit include directives for them to every source file where they're needed, I have introduced a method of wrapping the corresponding public headers. parallel to the public headers in $(srcdir)/include, we now have wrappers in $(srcdir)/src/include that come earlier in the include path order. they include the public header they're wrapping, then add declarations for namespace-protected versions of the same interfaces and any "internally public" interfaces for the subsystem they correspond to. along these lines, the wrapper for features.h is now responsible for the definition of the hidden, weak, and weak_alias macros. this means source files will no longer need to include any special headers to access these features. over time, it is my expectation that the scope of what is "internally public" will expand, reducing the number of source files which need to include *_impl.h and related headers down to those which are actually implementing the corresponding subsystems, not just using them.
2018-01-09revise the definition of multiple basic locks in the codeJens Gustedt-1/+1
In all cases this is just a change from two volatile int to one.
2017-03-21make setlocale return a single name for LC_ALL if all categories matchRich Felker-2/+5
when called for LC_ALL, setlocale has to return a string representing the state of all locale categories. the simplest way to do this was to always return a delimited list of values for each category, but that's not friendly in the fairly common case where all categories have the same setting. He X proposed a patch to check for this case and return a single name; this patch is a simplified approach to do the same.
2015-05-27overhaul locale internals to treat categories roughly uniformlyRich Felker-45/+27
previously, LC_MESSAGES was treated specially as the only category which could be set to a locale name without a definition file, in order to facilitate gettext message translations when no libc locale was available. LC_NUMERIC was completely un-settable, and LC_CTYPE stored a flag intended to be used for a possible future byte-based C locale, instead of storing a __locale_map pointer like the other categories use. this patch changes all categories to be represented by pointers to __locale_map structures, and allows locale names without definition files to be treated as valid locales with trivial definition when used in any category. outwardly visible functional changes should be minor, limited mainly to the strings read back from setlocale and the way gettext handles translations in categories other than LC_MESSAGES. various internal refactoring has also been performed, and improvements in const correctness have been made.
2015-05-27replace atomics with locks in locale-setting codeRich Felker-16/+32
this is part of a general program of removing direct use of atomics where they are not necessary to meet correctness or performance needs, but in this case it's also an optimization. only the global locale needs synchronization; allocated locales referenced with locale_t handles are immutable during their lifetimes, and using atomics to initialize them increases their cost of setup.
2015-05-16eliminate costly tricks to avoid TLS access for current locale stateRich Felker-6/+1
the code being removed used atomics to track whether any threads might be using a locale other than the current global locale, and whether any threads might have abstract 8-bit (non-UTF-8) LC_CTYPE active, a feature which was never committed (still pending). the motivations were to support early execution prior to setup of the thread pointer, to partially support systems (ancient kernels) where thread pointer setup is not possible, and to avoid high performance cost on archs where accessing the thread pointer may be very slow. since commit 19a1fe670acb3ab9ead0fe31859ca7d4fe40dd54, the thread pointer is always available, so these hacks are no longer needed. removing them greatly simplifies the affected code.
2014-07-24implement locale file loading and state for remaining locale categoriesRich Felker-2/+12
there is still no code which actually uses the loaded locale files, so the main observable effect of this commit is that calls to setlocale store and give back the names of the selected locales for the remaining categories (LC_TIME, LC_COLLATE, LC_MONETARY) if a locale file by the requested name could be loaded.
2014-07-02add locale frameworkRich Felker-5/+63
this commit adds non-stub implementations of setlocale, duplocale, newlocale, and uselocale, along with the data structures and minimal code needed for representing the active locale on a per-thread basis and optimizing the common case where thread-local locale settings are not in use. at this point, the data structures only contain what is necessary to represent LC_CTYPE (a single flag) and LC_MESSAGES (a name for use in finding message translation files). representation for the other categories will be added later; the expectation is that a single pointer will suffice for each. for LC_CTYPE, the strings "C" and "POSIX" are treated as special; any other string is accepted and treated as "C.UTF-8". for other categories, any string is accepted after being truncated to a maximum supported length (currently 15 bytes). for LC_MESSAGES, the name is kept regardless of whether libc itself can use such a message translation locale, since applications using catgets or gettext should be able to use message locales libc is not aware of. for other categories, names which are not successfully loaded as locales (which, at present, means all names) are treated as aliases for "C". setlocale never fails. locale settings are not yet used anywhere, so this commit should have no visible effects except for the contents of the string returned by setlocale.
